Any confirmation on when merch (lanyards, T-shirts, etc) will ship?

As far as the collectible programs go, these will likely be picked up at the show, like previous Celebrations.
Funny you should ask this. This morning I got my shipping email for the pre-order merchandise I chose way back when. This includes the Pre-Order T-Shirt, Logo T-Shirt, Logo Pin, Rey Pin, Logo Patch, and Lanyard.

The Program not sent, which means you pick-up on site. That is easy to do.

When you activated the badge what steps were required?
example:
step 1 code on badge
what was step 2 3 4
any help would be a
helpful
From what I remember, I was prompted for my name and email address. I believe there were a couple other questions like what your favorite thing to do at Celebration is. Something like that. I remember when I got to the end and got it activated, it also had an image of Vader/Kylo/Grevious, etc. and a message that said "You have been chosen by the Dark Side of the Force." :)

Still no word on my badges. When I asked support, they said some badges wouldn’t arrive until a week before the convention. Sigh.

Who do I contact for support? Reed POP? I just want my badge number so I can enter the lotteries. If what the guy above says its true, getting badges shortly before the show, that kills any hope for me! Someone else mentioned you can use your order number to activate your badge and enter the lotteries. Has that worked for anyone?

Anyone can correct me here if I've misspoken.
I believe it is the "conformation number" that is on your receipt when you ordered your badge
that should work.
I don't know personally if it'll make it easier.

That's correct. You can enter the panel lotteries using either the email address or confirmation # for your badge order.

In order to activate your badge, you need to enter the unique code found beneath the QR code on the badge itself.

hey guys looking for tickets and have a quick question

i see online they are sold out of tickets.

can you walk up and buy at the convention or are they completely sold out for friday and saturday?

if they are sold out where you can't buy in person, then eBay is where i should look?

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to walk up and buy Friday or Saturday tickets on site. Your best bet is someone on here looking to sell or Facebook. I also think they’re showing up on eBay as well.

People are selling their badges and trying to find someone to take over their hotel reservations due to a change in family plans.
Good luck to you my friend.

I received my pins, lanyard, and 2 T-Shirts that were preordered from Reed Expo TODAY. I guess i'll pickup the program guide at the convention center.

Lots are being sold right now due to change of plans.

Don't forget to look at the official resale site. Lyte, I think it is called.

I bet if some big names had been announced you wouldn't see those tickets for sale! a sad situation. I don't think this has happened before, we saw many tickets selling on E-Bay.

I have a single 5-day badge available if anybody needs one. I got it for a friend who can't go now due to a death in the family. PM me if you are interested. I will release it to lyte tomorrow if there aren't any takers.

Quick dumb question here...

Ended up buying some passes on eBay which are now activated.
The information that came with the pass says you can pick up a lanyard at convenient locations near main entrance.
Are these lanyards free?

Thanks

Yes, the lanyards are free. But these are just generic ones. If they're the same as the last couple of conventions, I think they were given out by Thinkgeek.

Relieved my badge showed up today in the mail.
A few Celebrations ago, my first one was lost by USPS or UPS (forget which it came), they shipped me a new one via Fed-ex and it got routed to the wrong state and then got lost. We thought we would never get a badge. Thankfully Fed-ex found it and routed it right to our hotel, instead of our original address, they were great.

So do I need to activate my passes to get in or is that only for lotteries and other bonus stuff?

Question for convention veterans. I bought 2 5 day passes from someone on the facebook exchange page. I have activated one of the badges, and yet I CANNOT preorder anything from the store, and cannot register for ANY of the panels or for ANY of the exclusive lines or anything else. Does anyone here know how to fix this problem? I have put in a question to customer service, but the deadline for panel and other lotteries is TOMORROW. HELP!!!

None of those functions are available on the app just yet, for anyone. If you haven't done so already, you can register for Celebration Stage and exclusive lotteries on here before the deadline https://www.swclottery.com/group_lotteries/start/Star_Wars_Celebration

Reservations for both the Galaxy and Twin Suns Stages go live Wednesday 10am CST for VIP's and Thursday 10am CST for regular attendees on the app.

I have an extra "Fast Pass" from Hasbro Pulse. Is there anyone who might be able to pick me up an extra Obi and Maul and can make use of this pass? I don't know if it's "transferrable" but it looks like the Hasbro Pulse e-mail just has my name in plain black and white text floating above the fancy graphics of the pass. *cough* Photoshop *cough*

Unfortunately, I don't think a transfer is possible with a Photoshop change. You need to show an ID.
